USDA proposes BioPreferred
WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is making it easier for consumers to identify bio-based products through the release of its proposed BioPreferred labeling rule.
USDA’s BioPreferred labeling program intends to create a product label that would appear on qualifying BioPreferred bio-based products. When final, this regulation would allow bio-based product manufacturers to participate in a voluntary labeling program to identify bio-based products on retail store shelves.
Bio-based products are products that are composed wholly or significantly of biological ingredients, renewable plant, animal, marine or forestry materials. A BioPreferred designated item is one that meets or exceeds USDA-established minimum bio-based content requirements.
